Route Description for Hallin Fell Walk

Besides a bit of boggy terrain along the trail, the only real downside to the Hallin Fell Walk is that it simply just isn’t long enough! If you are looking to extend your walk to spend some extra time taking in the amazing views overlooking Ullswater and the surrounding fells of the Lake District, make sure to bring a GPS or trail map in order to follow some of the intersecting trails that can be found in the area. Additionally, spaces at the car park are limited, so be sure to arrive early enough to secure one.

Setting out from the car park, the trail will take you east along the road for a short distance before turning to the north to begin the climb uphill. Here, you will traverse a stretch of moorland terrain that can sometimes be a bit boggy, making water-resistant boots a good idea if you are planning to complete this route in wet weather. After reaching the carin at the summit of Hallin Fell, you will be ankle to enjoy sweeping views of the surrounding Lake District landscape that includes the deep blue expanse of Ullswater before you, as well as Gowbarrow Fell, Green Hill, and Birk Crag across the water to the north. After taking in the views, take the trail leading to the southwest to descend the hillside along a different route that will lead you right back to the car park where you began your adventure.
